The diversity of Northampton’s independent businesses will be celebrated at an Independence Day event at The Guilhall.

The Love Northampton Fair will give shoppers the opportunity to discover more than 20 local independent shops and businesses under one roof. The event is being held to mark the national Independents’ Day campaign which aims to promote and celebrate independent businesses across the UK.

The free event, organised by Northampton Borough Council in conjunction with The Wine Connection, will be held from 11am to 4pm on Saturday July 4 and will feature food and wine samples, special offers and much more.

Laura Baruch, from The Wine Connection, said: “We hope as many people as possible will be able to come along to taste some great food and drink and enjoy the best of the town’s fashion and lifestyle choices.”

Councillor Mary Markham, leader of Northampton Borough Council, said: “As a council we are keen to support local businesses as much as we can and we hope the event will serve as an opportunity for shoppers to discover the area’s independent businesses and all they have to offer.”
